This article by John Abbott and Terence Ryan appeared in the Spring, 1999 issue of Education Canada.
Constructing Knowledge, Reconstructing SchoolingRather than thinking of the brain as a computer, cognitive scientists now utilize a far more flexible, biological analogy, where the brain is seen as a unique, ever-changing organism that grows and reshapes itself in response to use.

The article first appeared in the November 1999 issue ofEducational Leadership.
